The pillowcases are a heavier-than-average cotton, but the quality is really nice. And the thickness makes them more wrinkle resistant. They're not rough....still soft on the face....just a heavier, sturdier cotton. I got the ivory and I like the color because it's not a yellowy ivory like some...it's a cooler color...just a nice beige.
We like having four pillows on our bed and we needed two more pillow cases to go with our 1200 TC sheet set. The color (ivory) is slightly different (expected this because it's a different supplier) but close enough. We like the heavy weight of high thread count sheets.
As long as the deep pockets are much deeper than you need, your safe. If you have an extremely over deep mattress, each washing - even on cold water - will shrink the depth. It's a slow process, but based on the shrinkage so far, I doubt the sheet will continue to fit my very deep mattress within a year.
These are absolutely the most thick and luxurious linens I have ever purchased- anywhere-any time. Like all sheets, pillow cases, etc.... wash before use and dry on the permanent press cycle and the wrinkles will be minimal. Do not hesitate to purchase these pillow cases, no matter the price.

These pillowcases arrived within 5 days of ordering. I love the thickness of them. The cases are cool on your head and crispy. It is now hard for me to travel because I love my bedding at my house. I have become a bedding snob. When I travel I take a pillowcase with me. Theses pillowcases are the best. Thank you.
I ordered new pillow cases to match my new comforter set. While these are not an exact match, they look very nice on my bed. They are silky in texture and of a much better quality than I hoped for. They arrived promptly. I am very happy with the delivery system and would order items again from overstock.
